When you put two creative minds together, you never know what may happen. Take Lee Beiler, former owner of the iconic Blue Parrot in East Hampton, and Maureen Taylor, who ran Samadhi House Yoga Studio and Spa in Montauk. They have decided to sell their Montauk home and move to their other residence, in Kauai, Hawaii.
Since the Kauai home is home, they really don't need to pack up the Montauk house. So Taylor says she and Beiler came up with the idea of "selling a life." To that end, they are selling the home, which they designed "right down to the hinges," with all its contents. They're even throwing in two cars -- a Porsche Carrera convertible and a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
"When we made the decision to move and simplify, it seemed a shame to take anything out," says Taylor.
The asking price is $3.6 million.
The 4,757-square-foot house -- including three covered porches and one open porch -- was built in 2002 and is appointed with antiques, including a Civil War gun mounted above one of the three stone fireplaces. "It's sprawling in every way," Taylor says, adding that it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The property, just shy of one acre, has water views as well as a 16-by-44-foot gunite saltwater pool.
"Our home is very important to us, and we put it together with love and care. We are excited by the idea of having a family come in," Taylor says, noting it's also available unfurnished.
Taylor and Beiler, who raised their daughter, Vanessa, 29, there, are equally as enthusiastic about Montauk. "It's an exceptional small town surrounded by the elements," Taylor says, vowing to return every fall.
